In our inaugural partnership, we collaborate with Ecco and their innovation arm Ecco Leather, deemed the industry’s most experimental tannery, to deliver a versatile, color-shifting Track 25 equipped with premium materials.
A partner to top luxury fashion houses, Ecco Leather lends its innovative techniques to designers like Rick Owens, Wales Bonner, JJJJound, and the recent Tiffany x Nike collaboration. Concepts and Ecco make use of Kromatofor, a soft full-grain leather that gives a thermochromatic color-shifting effect when temperatures change. Most noticeable when transitioning from city to forest, we apply this leather to the Ecco Track 25 silhouette, which is ready for use in all environmental conditions.
Centered on the themes of individuality, evolution, and sustainability, each detail is designed to inspire these tenets in others to create their own change in the world.
The use of Kromatofor and hardware made to patina over time lend itself to creating a one-of-a-kind look that’s as unique as the wearer.
Committed to sustainability and making a change for good, the manufacturing process is equally as unique. Each shoe is made with DriTan™ technology which saves 2L of fresh water per pair of shoes. A reusable tote bag made from upcycled leather is also included as a complimentary gift with purchase.
The Concepts x Ecco Track 25 will be available in two colorways on Friday, March 3rd, 2023 at Concepts BOS, NYC, and cncpts.com.
